Digital humanities, Digital scholarship
This presentation focuses on how a set of digital humanities workshops offered to university faculty helped them incorporate new resources and methods into their teaching. The first workshop was an overview of digital tools that focused on getting started without feeling overwhelmed, ways to incorporate art and archival resources into projects, and approaches to facilitating meaningful experiences in the classroom. The second workshop refined this material by focusing on how the same idea and content could be used to create three different digital humanities projects—a collection database and map, an online exhibit, and a digital publication. The exhibitions and digital publications created for use in teaching this workshop, along with subsequent student projects, in turn became resources for additional outreach beyond the university setting. Specific strategies for planning and delivering these online workshops are covered, including next steps that led to collaborations and additional faculty and student engagement.
